What to expect on your first visit.
Your first visit with us should take about 30 minutes.
Upon your arrival, we give you a form to fill out in order for us to get to know you better.
We then proceed to the consultation room and discuss your history in detail to establish, in your words, what is causing the problem or problems you are experiencing.
After a thorough history, we discuss and go through a series of examinations involving postural, neurological, orthopaedic and chiropractic tests. These examinations are non-invasive and you only need to remove your shoes for this part of the session.
The cause of your problem will be analysed, evaluated and discussed with you prior to the commencement of your treatment. In many cases treatment may begin immediately. Sometimes further test (e.g. X-rays) may be needed.
A series of chiropractic adjustments will be discussed and performed according to your individual needs. The goals for your wellbeing will be set and monitored throughout your chiropractic care to ensure we are keeping on track.
Chiropractic care consists of a series of "adjustments" designed to alleviate stress on nerves, muscles and joints of the body. Each adjustment builds on the one before it, gradually enticing the body to remain in a state of correction. Your care is based on the three stages of healing:
1) Relieving Pain and Inflammation.
2) Stabilising to enable healing.
3) Preventing a relapse.
Depending on your condition, you may be given some home care advice, which will further help with your recovery as an important part of your treatment.
For your convenience EFTPOS and HICAPS (Electronic on the spot Health Fund Processing) is available.
Free car parking for one to two hours is also available.
